Computer restarts after you bump it.

Any kind of jostling of my computer causes it to restart. Do I have a short in my power switch or could it be something major?

  1. I know you're going to ask...

    Rosewill 1300 Watt power supply
    InWin GRone case
    MSI 890FXA-GD70 Mobo
    PhenomII x6 1090T CPU
    OCZ 1600Mhz 8GB Ram
  2. I switched out the PSU and it still is doing this.
  3. Loose connections?
  4. Best answer
    Check the cable from the header on the motherboard to the reset button at the front of the case. I'll bet the cable is cut/frayed somewhere along there.
  5. Well, now I have another problem. It will not post at all. I'm going to replace the motherboard.
  6. Replaced motherboard. Still won't post. I'm going to try another video card now.
  7. Check HDD. Happened to me recently, i touched HDD and pc turned off.
  8. Tried new RAM. No success. Did get computer to boot while laying flat. I'm going to disconnect the reset switch cable and see if this is what is shorting it out. Then, I'm replacing the entire case.
  9. Have you tried replacing everything?
  10. Unplugged reset switch. Now it works.
